The investigation is nearly complete in a fatal March 22 accident on Stanley Boulevard, Lafayette police Chief Mike Hubbard said Wednesday.

A team of officers who specialize in reconstructing accidents is working on final speed calculations, and then the case will be forwarded to the Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office.
Investigators have reconstructed the accident based on physical evidence, dozens of witness interviews and an array of records, Hubbard said.

Prosecutors will decide what, if any, charges are filed in the case.

A man being investigated in connection with the fatal six-car crash was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police said Wednesday. Police have not identified, charged or cited the driver.

The chain-reaction crash occurred when a BMW slammed into the rear of a Mazda on Stanley Boulevard at Pleasant Hill Road in front of Acalanes High School.
The Mazda driver, Dale Zenor, 55, of Walnut Creek, died. Five other people in vehicles in front of the Mazda were injured.
